‘Andrew Mallen is an outstanding teacher and practitioner both in acting training and drama understanding in general. I have seen Andrew have quite remarkable results in bringing out young peoples potential to a professional standard in his shows and inspirational education projects. By far, though, the most impressive element of his teaching is his effect on the self esteem and happiness of the students that he gives so much to’.
